    Bodykit for my A3

    As above chaps, i have just brought a 04 plate 3.2 and am already on the hunt for a kit, there is a s3 one on ebay for Ł175 but i think that will be a botch up to fit lol, i think the gen one's will be too pricey so does anyone know of any abs plastic one's ? i would also consider another make of kit if anyone as any links etc
    Any help is appreaicated

    Hofele andABT do some reasonable kits for the A3 however, I think you're best off going AUDI OEM with either the S-Line kit or S3 kit or a combination of the two all personal pref of course

    Ł175 sounds a bit cheap for an S3 kit... I'd probably steer clear of that - what did it include?

    ECS Tuning do the genuine Votex kits very cheap but i'm not sure how much postage would be (USA) - probably cheaper than buying new from the UK though - http://www.ecstuning.com/Audi-A3-Qua...aign=postreply

    votex was offered by Audi as an extra on early 8p2's before the full s line kit was available, to give people the option of making their a3 a little bit differant.

    It has Audi branding on it, so really it can be classed as oem. There is a few a3's out there with audi fitted votex kits.

    The skirts are rather nice, the front lip is ok, but the rear diffuser is a bit burberry :P

    It was already fittd when i bought the car

    It's the same kit as in the link to ECS i posted -
    front lower spoiler, rear lower valance, upper rear spoiler, side skirts - tailpipe extensions are supposed to be fitted as the valance sticks out more but as you can see my old car didn't have them?

    Thanks for that robby, i think i may of found an s line front bumper, think i will add them vortex side skirts, and then i have the rear to think about. To either put that vortex diffuser on or try and source a s line rear bumper.

    there is some votex sides on ebay, but they are for 5 door.

    Did your bumper have the spots and grills in?

    As you may/may not know the fogs from the non s line dont fit the sline grill.

    Unfortunately the fogs are like hens teeth on ebay.

    You are looking at around Ł60 each new. Surrounds are about Ł20 each.

    I have just finished getting all the bits together myself, so I know how expensive it is going to be

    Lee, I think the bar can be adapted, but, I think they are circa Ł40 from dealer. You don't hang about do you...

    Just a splash of Votex to make you cringe........

    If everybody liked the same thing , it would all be very boring.

    But N8, I do value your opinion, even if I do choose to disagree !

    If you mean grill at the top then the bumper then the grill again at the bottom with a grill on either side for the fogs, that is mine. The one that i brought the grill holes where the fogs go are really long into the bumper, but i can get my hands on another s line bumper where the fog light holes are not so long and look about the same lenght as mine so am confused, was there two different s line bumpers ?
    Any help is greatful
